Mission Trip to Blue Knob, Pa.

Our 2014 mission trip included four youth from St. John's, two from St. Luke's, two chaperones, plus three Team Effort staff members shown here (l. to r.): Jerry, Barrie, Nate, Laine, Tana, Victoria, Grace, Allie, Sister Mary Michael, Shawn, and Hannah. We traveled to Blue Knob, Pa. (outside Altoona and up the hill a long way) for a weeklong mission trip that included building a deck for residents of a trailer park, wild evangelical worship, good fun, lots of inside jokes, prayer, a visit to Idlewild Park in Ligonier, a visit to the Flight 93 Memorial, some illicit purchases at WalMart, and a LOT of time in the van. Folks from St. Peter's, Essex Fells, and St. James's in Upper Montclair also participated.
